The project is focused on increasing nitrogen efficiency. France and Belgium use different feed evaluation systems, both of which are also changing over time. The different systems result hinder the comparison of feedstuff evaluation on one side and ration calculations on the other side.
Cross-border exchange and application of research innovations aiming to increase nitrogen efficiency in dairy nutrition and profitability of dairy farms.
The element nitrogen (N) is ubiquitous: 78% of the atmosphere is composed of nitrogen gas (N2) and it is a building block of all life on earth. No wonder it is an essential element in plant fertilizers and animal feed. Yet it also causes some intractable environmental problems.
The nitrogen cycle
The nitrogen gas (N2) that makes up 78% of the air cannot be used in that form by living organisms. To be available as a nutrient, it must be converted into a reactive form. The main natural sources of reactive nitrogen are biological nitrogen fixation in soils and oceans, wildfires, and lightning.
